A baby's bones by Alexander, Rebecca, 1960- author. A baby's bones

"It was a secret burial. Maybe even murder..." Archaeologist Sage Westfield has been called in to excavate a sixteenth-century well, and expects to find little more than soil and the odd piece of pottery.

Yet there is more to the case than a four-hundred-year-old mystery.
